Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place a heavy pot over medium-high heat with at least 1-inch of vegetable oil for boneless chicken and 2 inches for whole pieces. Heat oil to 350 degrees F; it is important to monitor and maintain the temperature, or the soy flour breading and your oil will burn. (Portable deep fryers at home are great for this.)

In a medium bowl, mix the eggs and cream to make an egg wash. In a separate larger bowl, mix all the breading ingredients together.

Season the chicken well with salt and pepper. Dip it first in the breading, then in the egg wash, and then back in the breading again, making sure to coat well on all sides. Pat off any excess breading and then carefully place into hot oil and fry until golden brown and crisp, just a few minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Boneless chicken breasts, if thinly cut, may cook all the way by frying alone, but whole chicken will not because of how fast soy flour browns. It is best to place any chicken you fry with soy flour on a sheet pan and finish by baking at 350 degrees F for an additional 10 minutes for boneless chicken and 20 to 25 minutes more for cut up chicken pieces that have bones. The internal temperature of the chicken should register 165 degrees F. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note

Soy flour is made from toasted soybeans and has already been "cooked." Therefore it has a tendency to brown faster than plain flour when frying. Try this same breading for onion rings, baked pork chops, okra, mozzarella sticks, mushrooms, onion rings and eggplant.
